just had to happen in the romney/ryan campaign. now, over and over and over again on this campaign, on issues big and small, the romney/ryan campaign before today has been able to use one particular technique to escape the consequences of having unpopular policy ideas or policy ideas they don't particularly want to defend. they do this same thing over and over again, and usually, it works for them. here's the pattern. here's the pattern they have established. here's mitt romney back in august telling scott pelly of "06 minutes" that he believes abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. seriously? mitt romney thinks abortion is okay if a woman's health is in danger? no, not really. his campaign later said, no, never mind what mitt romney just said. he does not believe abortion should be allowed to protect a woman's health. okay. then in september, here was mitt romney telling david gregory on "meet the press" that he's not going to repeal all of obama care. he says he will keep part of obama care. but the part that requires coverage for people with pre-existing conditi
debate marks another high-stakes moment in the campaign. the romney-ryan team is hoping to hang on to its new momentum, while the obama-biden camp is trying to win it back. that left all of the pressure on the number two's today, as the hours counted down. the candidates were sounding upbeat, ahead of their face-off at centre college in danville, kentucky. vice president joe biden departed his home state of delaware today for the debate. >> i'm looking forward to it. >> woodruff: the republican vice presidential nominee, wisconsin congressman paul ryan, arrived yesterday. >> feel good about it. >> woodruff: but the public show of confidence belied the tension, as several new national polls show ryan's running mate, governor romney, with a slight lead, though within the margin of error. that made what happens on the stage tonight, even more critical. president obama called his vice president to wish him luck today, and voiced support for his man last night, in an interview on abc news. >> i think joe just needs to be joe. >> woodruff: and mitt romney played up ryan's chances, at a wednesd
ryan on the campaign trail today in the battleground state of ohio. he echoed what governor romney was saying almost insultly in the form policy debate he delivered at the virginia military institute. >> if you go home after this and turn on your tv, you can likely see the failures of the obama foreign he policy unfolding before our eyes. you see if you look around the world what we are witnessing is the unraveling of the obama foreign policy. >> nbc's ron mott is traveling with the ryan campaign. he joins us by phone. obviously, ron, we see which direction the romney/ryan ticket would like to at least take this week? >> reporter: claktly. hey there, tamron. hope you can hear me over the rumble of the bus. we're heading into detroit. i'm sure the campaign could pack more stuff into the schedule today. in addition to the rally if in toledo where you heard paul ryan, he has three events around the detroit area. this is romney's old stomping ground from his younger days, and they're not quite ready to give up on a michigan where they think they can make a play. he's on his way to an e
the romney-ryan ticket for making this an issue. >> woodruff: the vice president, in turn, charged it was ryan who was stretching the truth. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. in fact... >> and why is that so? >> because not a single thing he said is accurate. first of all... >> be specific. >> i will be very specific. number one, the... this lecture on embassy security-- the congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for, number one. so much for the embassy security piece. >> woodruff: today, romney and other republicans pounced on the biden remarks. >> there were more questions that came out of last night because the vice president directly contradicted the sworn testimony of state department officials. he... he's doubling down on denial. >> woodruff: but at the white house, presidential press secretary jay carney said the vice president was correct in what he said. >> he was speaking directly for himself and for the president. he meant the white house and as is, of course, appropriate, these kinds of issues are handl
was mitt romney. he picked paul ryan for a simple reason and the same reason he went to the olympics. he wanted to. he runs his campaign. he is the ceo of the campaign. he is his own karl rove. it has cost him a lot of problems. he is the product, not the ceo. that is how he set it up. they feel good about the ryan choice now. they gave republicans excitement. they needed it. if it costs them problems or florida, then it is a gap. >> i would do it differently. romney had had a bad summer. he had had a bad trip to europe. he came back. there was a discomfort in terms of where the campaign was and where they were headed. he wanted to shake things up. he did not think this was the time for a safe choice. there were two groups of people that were excited about the pick of paul ryan. hwang was conservative republicans and the others were congressional democrats. we could finally make the ryan plan a big deal. it did not end up being a positive or negative. it moved romney's numbers of about 2 points up and then dissipated. it closed things up in wisconsin and settle down. it has been fairly n
. and coming to us tonight with a preview of romney versus ryan is kiki mcclain. welcome back inside "the war room." >> glad to be here governor. >> jennifer: all right. i am predicting we'll see a different strategy from joe biden in this debate, do you agree? >> yeah, i do, and i think it has to do with both personality and the role the vice president plays. the game is not to just beat up each other and see who coming outstanding, success will be the team that moves their candidate's message and that's joe biden's job. and feel free to drive that wedge between the truth and what mr. ryan has to say. >> jennifer: i think there are a lot of wedges or air that can be exposed between, for example, paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan's budget, huge opportunity, and of course the lies that paul ryan himself has uttered like in his convention speech. biden is not going to sit back and take that i assume. >> no, i don't think so. and i think people will be watching for daylight between paul ryan and mitt romney. paul ryan not wanting to drag his own career down with this guy
: paul ryan tailgated with football fans in ohio, while mitt romney rallied supporters. the republican team was across the key battleground states saturday. >> we need ohio. if we get ohio we can take back america. >> reporter: the stakes are high. no republican has won the white house without a victory in ohio. at a rally in portsmouth, romney told the crowd he sees the enthusiasm growing. >> when i am president, i will save the american family and get good jobs for every american. >> i bet on american workers and engine newt and three years later the bet is paying off in a big way. the president arrived in virginia saturday as his campaign announced a fundraising milestone. they said 4 million people have donated money for president obama's re-election bid. the president will spend the next few days cramming for the debate. romney had the boost in the first race. president obama has pledged to be more aggressiveny round 2 tuesday night. cbs news. >> and you can watch tuesday night's second presidential debate on cbs 5 at 6:00. it will be a town hall style enforcement allowing peopl
with the ryan campaign. he joins us by phone. obviously, ron, we see which direction the romney/ryan ticket would like to at least take this week? >> reporter: claktly. hey there, tamron. hope you can hear me over the rumble of the bus. we're heading into detroit. i'm sure the campaign could pack more stuff into the schedule today. in addition to the rally if in toledo where you heard paul ryan, he has three events around the detroit area. this is romney's old stomping ground from his younger days, and they're not quite ready to give up on a michigan where they think they can make a play. he's on his way to an education roundtable and a fund-raiser and another big rally tonight planned. another thing unusual about his speech in toledo was the fact it was much longer than usual. he went 33 minutes or so. usually we get a15, 20 minutes out of him and he doesn't spend a lot of time talking about foreign policy. because the crowd saw governor romney's speech at the virginia military institute, paul ryan wanted to talk a little bit about that and perhaps giving him a little more of a chance to g
lawrence. >> coming up, mitt romney is now bi-curious. what does that mean for paul ryan in his debate? just how bi can paul ryan go? >>> and big bird's most passionate defender will join us later which will give me a chance to have a mini "west wing" reunion. and a member of the science commit me who thinks science is aloif from the pit of hell. and he thinks he's a scientist. also tonight steve mor continue -- martin decided to do his political commercial, one of those guys, steve martin or bob kerrey will join me to explain why steve did that. ♪ hi dad. many years from now, when the subaru is theirs... hey. you missed a spot. ...i'll look back on this day and laugh. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. >>> coming up, mitt romney tried to play a moderate at the debate last week. this week, paul rien's going to give it a shot. he's never played that part before. ryan versus biden is next. former nebraska senator bob kerrey will talk about his race to get back into the senate and how he talked steve martin in to helping him. a republican congress man says the bible teaches us al
supports the romney ryan plan for economy would shower the world's wealthiest individuals with trickle down tax cuts. melissa: no trickle down government? >> well, this iss just another version of that radical right-wing social experime known as trickle-down ecomics which proved to be complete failure. there is no supply side solution to the current situation. we need a demandside solution. we need americans with jobs and businesses need customers with money in their pockets ready to spend it that will be the only thing that will kick-start e economy. melissa: justin, mitt romney said he would not repeal dodd-frank whether you believe it or not. he would not make it easier for them. that banks given him the money and he will pull a bait and switch. who do you think the friend is? >> governor romney said we develop in the debate which he did very well bense president obama, look, there are things that we need regulation on. and i think that is mething that he needs to say more often. obvisly republicans believe in a more of a free market system that there can be trickle down government that
to attack which gives joe biden an opening to hit romney so hard -- to hit ryan so hard that mitt romney is going to feel it too. from the sound of it, the vice president seems to be getting his weight up. >> what i've been doing mostly is quite frankly, studying up on congressman ryan's positions. i just want to make sure that when i say these things that i don't have the congressman no, no, no, i don't have that position or that's not the governor's position. so it's mainly getting the factual predicates. >> when it comes to strategy thursday, in this and only this, he may want to steal a move from dick cheney. recall in 2004 when president george w. bush choked in the first of his three debates against john kerry. there was a strong performance against john edwards. cheney took one for the team playing the attack dog and allowing bush to keep his presidential hands clean. although i'd like to see a little more heat from president obama in debate number two, he can still keep it cool and classy while letting biden go all the way off the leash. but even before the first presidential deb
to carry the fight to mitt romney and paul ryan to again show that the democratic party, the democratic ticket is fighting frankly. and to. >> warner: some democrats were doubting. >> try to make this debate about the ryan budget, whether the republicans are telling the truth. whether there is a different mitt romney to really carry the fight. >> warner: susan, what do the romney-ryan team think it has to do with vice president biden to try to keep the momentum going? >> well... arner: and not become a target of all these questions about the ryan plan. >> you know, a debate where people said that republicans won, that would be great news for the romney team trying to build on this progress that they made since the last debate. because of course as andy knows better than anyone, findings that go your way quickly can go away quickly. it indicates a race in some flux. i think specifically they're going to want to be in a position to defend the attacks they know are coming especially on the issues of medicare and domestic spending because you can tie paul ryan to the paul ryan budget plan t
, the romney/ryan budget would make it tougher on hard working americans. >> that was the democratic national convention last month. campbell and her group will be kicking off another leg of their anti-poverty tour. this take making stops in ohio. meanwhile, mitt romney still can't give a straight answer on exactly what his tax plan is for the the wealthy. romney campaigned on giving the mega rich a tax cut. his website backs him up. yet at the debate, romney claimed the opposite. >> first of all, i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. let me repeat what i said. i'm not in favor of a $5 trillion tax cut. >> analysis from the nonpartisan tax policy center found romney's plan would cost the country $5 trillion over the the next ten years. romney's friends at fox news say romney doesn't have to explain his fuzzy math. here's chris wallace defending romney's flip-flop to governor martin o'malley. >> the president keeps saying that mitt romney is proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. that's not true. >> chris, wait a minute here. former governor is proposing a cut to income taxes including for the wealthi

to the debate. captioning funded by cbs >>joe biden and paul ryan clashed time after time. mitt romney building momentum after the presidential debate. >> cbs news took a poll of uncommitted voters who watched the debate. 50% said biden won, 31% said ryan won and 19% said it was a tie. >> 55% said biden was someone they could relate to. ryan's reliability went up. and 85% said biden was knowledgeable about the issues. jan, good morning? >> reporter: good morning. the president last week tried to explain his lackluster debate performance by saying he was too polite. well the vice president sure can't say that about his performance last night. he came roaring out of the block, he never slowed down to the point the republicans this morning are making that a talking point. they say he interrupted paul ryan 82 times. >> with all due respect that's a bunch of malarky. >> reporter: the vice president appeared to take the president's advice. joe just needs to be joe. >> is this a bunch of stuff. look here's the deal. >> reporter: biden's giant personality went into overdrive. within second he interrupt
congressman ryan and ann romney asserting that if the word "lie" is used this is just an excuse by democrats here. but again, the president still mired in explaining the mystery behind his first debate performance, louise. >> well, let's see. how many excuses have they had so far? you know, the first excuse was, well, mitt won on style. the president did what he needed to do. the second was mitt lied. the third was the president was prepared for the different mitt. well, you know, he should have been able to pivot. he's the president. right? i don't really know, you know, what really happened but i just know that the debate is like the gift that just keeps giving and it's not served -- it's just not served the president very well. you know, let me go to ann romney really quickly. >> sure. >> i'm not sure ann romney is being used in the best possible way. i mean, she is on the front lines fighting these fights for the campaign, fighting the fight for mitt. kind of lashing out. and she's, you know, her ratings are good but she'll end up altering that if she gets out there. i mean, she gets a l
everybody to do less well than they should. so i think now mitt romney and paul ryan are starting to pick up. host: what kind of ground game do you need to pick up ohio? guest: it is tougher for republicans because our vote is scattered in the rural counties, northwest ohio, eastern ohio now becoming more republican. it used to be more democratic. the democratic vote is concentrated in the northeast, i hope the county, in the cities of columbus and cincinnati. so they have an easier time. but led by the republican national committee, the ground game is very good this year. as far as gopac is concerned, we support state and local candidates. we're targeting state and local candidates in swing districts to turn out the votes from the bottom up, not the top down. host: explain that a little bit more. guest: we support the next generation of republicans, and these are republicans running primarily at the state and legislative level. we look for individuals that have leadership capabilities who someday might be speaker of the house or who would run for congress or senate sunday. those of the peop
. >> >> stephanie: we have paul ryan losing it on a reporter and mitt romney won't even take questions from kids. probably because of big bird. >> that's on tv -- >> stephanie: well, every president has answered questioned, right? >> you saw the picture of him holding the baby hysterically crying, i would imagine that mitt romney is not great with young kids. >> he is not cuddly. you don't think of jolly and mitt romney in the same sentence. >> no. he is probably best staying away. >> stephanie: i think he would be the awkward being slimed on nickelodeon. >> i love that. >> stephanie: and yet he is comfortable sliming the president. whatever. >> you can't do that on television. >> it was great stuff. >> good morning, there are misleading attack ads, and then there are ones that are just outright wrong. restore our future is running a new spot in florida, iowa and virginia, jumping on the president once again for high unemployment. see if you can spot the glaring error. >> welcome to the new normal. where over 8% unemployment is doing fine. and millions of americans have
of question as to whether or not the romney tax plan adds up. the ryan folks i talked to want to keep it at 20,000 feet. they want ryan to stick with the romney-like message of jobs and the economy, sound centrist, don't get too far out there in some sort of ideological makers versus takers debate. >> everybody that's ever worked for many years in industrial company or any kind, joan, fears the guy like paul ryan to show up. he comes in and he's the efficiency expert. he's the cost cutter. he comes in looking for people to fire, you know? everybody hates him. can he make him look like that guy or can he wag his tail and seem like he's the cute younger guy and get away with that? >> i don't think he really needs -- you should think about wagging his tail and being the cute younger guy, chris, because then you really do have this amazing stature gap between the two men. there's an age gap, an experience gap. i don't think paul rye yaen can afford to look cute and fuzzy. i think this is teed up perfectly for joe biden. all the things we talked about last week we wished the president might have th
to want to really frame a negative message against romney and ryan, and pick up where the president didn't do that well last week, or didn't mention at all, thinking of issues like the auto ballot, social security, the ryan proposal on that. the medicare issue, the 47% comment that romney made and people were stunned that obama didn't mention that last week. and, of course, romney's income taxes and how he made his money at bain consulting. those are all issues i think we will hear from joe biden on. and it is very different than what biden's pass was four years ago, steve, as you recall facing sarah palin. the biggest challenge been for biden was don't patronize sarah palin, don't bully sarah palin certainly, try to a quarter to a certain degree of respect. i think this is a different time, and paul ryan is a different opponent. >> there's been what some are calling the rebuttal as both congressman paul ryan, republican vice president to nominate and vice president biden try to set expectations for the debate on thursday. let me share with you will paul ryan said on the fox news channel
and telling us who is leading and right now obama and biden destroying romney and ryan. a very scientific poll. >> amazon has their own version of this game. they have a new map based on red and blue books americans are reading. top selling redbook, glenn beck's "coward." blue books, stephen colbert. >> of that pizza hut thing is only like mildly des truck stiff for democracy. we're talking about our favorite fake poll things. i have a classic example. this is from -- i do have -- yeah, okay. >> no, steve -- come here, have some more. >> is there a napkin? >> you don't eat on television. it's a hard and fast rule. >> that's what you always do. >> kornacki has got it all over. >> can you get a close up? >> it's gone. >> you look great. >> where is it? >> don't help him. >> thank you, mom. >> i have a story to tell. so before i got cupcake all over my face i was going to say the kids pick the president, the cupcakes pick the president. there was a small town a few years ago, one radio station in the town. they said if you are for bob dole, flush your toilet right now. then they waited a minute a
collection. which does not sound interesting as it is, but mitt romney picked paul ryan and the expectation among supporters would -- was that this would be a chance for him to outline a campaign with a whole set of policy decisions that would set him apart from the president, but in the past few weeks we have seen the campaign dynamics not changed that much. this is just one more issue on which the republicans are trying to be the president. host: is mitt romney going to focus more on what the president is doing wrong, or more on his own plan? caller: based on the release extroverts -- exurbs of the speech, it looks like they're trying to follow up on obama. there is not a huge gap there and the question for the president was from a couple of months ago, clearly the mitt romney campaign knows that there is more time to make some headway there. there is always the risk that by focusing on this before the vice presidential debate, even as both sides think that the economy is a top issue, you run into a risk of focusing on too many items as opposed to jobs and economic issues. host: there wil
. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the long run? >> typically these debates are memorable for gaffes and faults. >> joe biden has provided us many. >> but he's a great debater. he was fantastic four years ago and walk add fine line against a candidate that was considered to be a lightweight. so he had to show that he was one, a heavy which he was but not crush her. he did both of those things. he backed up the president's positions. it was a lit
said, joe biden will sell barack obama, but paul ryan has to sell mitt romney. you can't really sell paul ryan, right? so he has to -- it's going to be interesting to see how well he does that. i think we agree that joe biden will do his job, will go in and will explain all those crucial moments of the obama presidency and how things worked out and what a great guy he is. >> so joe biden, i agree will do his job. joe, do you think that paul ryan will be allowed to do his job? because i think the problem has been that from the moment he was chosen, they then were hiding his signature elements. >> well, paul ryan's not the president. and i think mitt romney said it clearly, i'm the president, paul ryan -- >> so he won't be allowed to do his job? >> no more than somebody you hire as a production assistant is going to tell you what to say on the air. >> well, i will say, he sounds really almost -- he chose his youth when he said mitt romney is the president, and therefore i believe. >> who is he? why was he chosen? because he has incredible, brave ideas. >> hold on. so -- >> at a time wh
